• Add music
(Music with video of students volunteering for Greater Miami Jewish Federation)
(fade to black)
VOICEOVER: FOR ONE MOMENT, THINK ABOUT THE WORDS PEOPLE USE TO DESCRIBE TEENAGERS.... (PAUSE) ADJECTIVES THAT DESCRIBE THEIR ATTITUDES...THEIR PERSONALITIES...OR EVEN, HOW THEY SEE THEMSELVES. THINK ABOUT WHAT WORDS COME TO MIND.
BECAUSE THE TEENS WHO VOLUNTEER WITH US (OR READ ALTERNATE: "THE JEWISH VOLUNTEER CENTER OF THE GREATER MIAMI JEWISH FEDERATION")…HAVE A LOT TO WAYS TO DESCRIBE *THEMSELVES*. AND THEY MIGHT NOT BE THE WORDS YOU'D EXPECT.
(SOT indicates sound-on-tape sound bite) (These will be quick sound bites of volunteers speaking of how incredible they feel about themselves when they are involved in a Greater Miami Jewish Federation volunteer project)
SOT “happy” "inspired"
(show words) VOICEOVER: AT THE JEWISH VOLUNTEER CENTER OF THE GREATER MIAMI JEWISH FEDERAION, YOUNG PEOPLE HAVE THE POWER TO SEE THEMSELVES IN A WHOLE NEW WAY... AS PRODUCTIVE MEMBERS OF OUR LARGER JEWISH COMMUNITY. THESE ARE OUR FUTURE LEADERS AND PHILANTHROPISTS.
SOT “I feel like sometimes people forget about the rest of the world and get so caught up in their lives and this keeps you focused and it gives everyone perspective”
SOT *it’s great we can show people that we can all come together and help"
SOT “my adjective for myself today is generous”
(GRAPHICS AND FEDERATION PHOTOS OF DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES)
VOICEOVER EACH YEAR, THEY TAKE PART A WIDE VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES THAT HELP STRENGTHEN THEIR CHARACTER WHILE HELPING OTHERS. FOR INSTANCE, JUST IMAGINE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A YOUNG B'NAI MITZVAH STUDENT CREATES A FRIENDSHIP WITH A HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR IN THE YOUNG LION OF JUDAH PROGRAM. (video of a volunteer playing and teaching) OR WHEN A TEENAGER AT A J-SERV EVENT LEARNS THAT A CHILD IN NEED, NEEDS HER!
SOT (cheerful) Being able to help others makes you feel good being helpful, it’s a feeling that you can’t get by doing anything else”
VOICEOVER: IN THE MITZVAH MIAMI PROGRAM, STUDENTS SPREAD CHEER THROUGH ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL PROGRAMS...LIKE A SENIOR PROM WHERE THEY LET OUR OLDEST RESIDENTS REMEMBER JUST WHAT IT'S LIKE, TO BE A YOUNG TEEN ONCE AGAIN. REACHING OUT TO OTHERS, IS WHAT THESE PROGRAMS ARE ALL ABOUT.
(this is video and an interview with a young volunteer playing tag with a disadvantaged youth at a volunteer activity)
SOT (If I could ask you one word to describe you today, what would you say?) “friendly”…
VOICEOVER: IN THE J-STAR PROGRAM, 8TH THROUGH 12TH GRADERS VOLUNTEER EACH MONTH, WHETHER ITS DELIVERING JEWISH HOLIDAY MEALS TO THE HOMEBOUND, PREPARING THANKSGIVING DINNER FOR THE HOMELESS OR PLAYING BINGO WITH RESIDENTS AT A LOCAL SENIOR CARE CENTER. IT'S TIME MANY TEENS WOULD JUST BE HANGING OUT WITH FRIENDS-BUT HERE, THEY'RE DOING IT WITH A PURPOSE.
SOT: Laurie asks: you could be shopping, watching tv, tell me why you love spending your day here doing this “it’s a great way to spend a day with your friends and you know you’re doing something well and I feel good about myself”
SOT: “it’s a great thing to do…it’s a great feeling.” “I feel strong, responsible, independent.” "I mean I got to do a lot of stuff on my own, here and I felt good about myself because they saw me as responsible”
THAT'S ALL JUST A SAMPLING OF THE KINDS OF PROGRAMS AND EVENTS THE YOUTH AND TEENS PROGRAM PROVIDES. AND REMEMBER, THESE ARE BONDS FOR LIFE; BECAUSE EACH TIME A TEENAGER REACHES OUT TO OTHERS, THEY ARE ALSO CREATING AN EVER-LASTING BOND WITH THE WIDER JEWISH COMMUNITY. SOMETIMES, THERE ISN'T EVEN AN WORD TO EXPLAIN HOW IMPORTANT THAT IS.
SOT: “there’s really no exact perfect word to describe what’s going on here. “We’re helping but it’s not just help, it’s something bigger than that. that. It’s something bigger than that and I just can’t find a word to describe it. I just feel really good about it, like I'm a really good person.”
